Liz Uy shocked the online world when she introduced her son Xavi a few months ago after keeping a low profile pregnancy last year.
For the first time, the celebrity stylist shared her pregnancy journey in an interview with the Philippine Star.
“I cried. I wasn’t ready,” she said.
“At 35 ang kapal ng mukha ko not to be ready, di ba? But I wasn’t. I was being selfish. I was just thinking of my career,” she added.
Despite the new challenge, she knew she had to toughen up for her firstborn.
“But if not me, who was going to do it? Lalong ayaw ko siya ipahawak sa strangers… If he was new to me, then all the more I was new to him.”
The father of Liz’s child is Raymond Racaza, a businessman, who the article clarified to be “estranged from his wife, and who has since been annulled.” He described Liz as a very pro-active mom.
“She’s a very hands-on mom, especially with the round-the-clock feeding. Despite her other obligations, she would always rush home to be with our son. She is very down-to-earth and has no sense of entitlement. Everything she has accomplished was done through hard work,” he said.
Liz gave birth to Xavi in the United States last September 2017.
